International Round Up | Gloucester Rugby players secure the results on international stage

What happened?

Chris Harris and Alex Craig were both in action for Scotland last Friday in the final fixture of the 2021 Six Nations.

The Scots, down to 14 men due to a Finn Russell red card, managed to secure an historic 27-23 victory over the French, their first win in Paris since 1999.

Chris Harris played a key role in the centre and was a rock in defence with Alex Craig having a big, physical impact when he came on off the bench.

Adam Hastings, who joins the Cherry and Whites next season, also played his part in the result, coming on and helping set up the attack which led to Duhan van der Merwe getting over for the score at the death to take the result.

What does it mean?

Louis Rees-Zammit will be thanking his Cherry and White teammates as the result meant that Wales won the 2021 Six Nations title.

France needed to beat Scotland by 21 points and score the bonus point try which they were unable to do meaning that the Welsh lift the trophy.

Also in action

Giorgi Kveseladze was also in action for Gerogia in the Rugby Europe Championship as his nation defeated Romania 28-17 in Tblisi.

Starting at outside centre, Kveseladze had a good game and the result means that Georgia are now four wins from four games in the competition.
